antec 1000w not good enough for 580 sli?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
My computer shuts off every time i play a certain game in full screen (e.g. Dirt3). this would happen only when i sli my 580s. when i play in windowed mode it wouldn't crash. i tested each card playing the same games on full screen and also tried 3d mark vantage twice each card. they ran pretty good without crashing. so now im thinking it could be the psu? because on certain intensive games at full resolution it'll shut off i thought it was an sli issue, but i ran nba 2k12 just fine for hours because it isn't really a demanding game. i also updated my bios.

this is the psu im using Antec 1000w
I've had this psu for so long and ran 260 sli with no problems (because of course they draw less power than the 580s) so if anyone has the same set up as mine or is currently having the same problem when enabling sli please let me know and how you fixed it. my specs are in the sig. thanks in advance!

Are your 580's stable, you could possibly have an unstable over clock and that could be the problem!

Hrm, each 580 is around 250w stock, add the rest of the system and you may be pushing towards 1kw. Overclock and you're past that figure. It may be that your TPQ1000 is going out of spec at that output, or it's overheating, either could cause a crash. How exactly is it crashing? Blue screen? Or instant shutoff?

If it's an older PSU, the time may well have come to replace it.

Are you guys serious? I'm fairly certain that PSU can handle that load easily. I'n fact, a quality 750w psu should handle that no problem.

A 850w can handle it, but hes going to work hard. gaming is going to be in the 600-700w. Its all good. But If he OC a bit and mostly if he bench ... its going to pull hard on the unit.

If you go plan to get a 1200W PSU, I highly recommend the Corsair AX1200. While I don't have 2 580's, it handles my system with TriFire 6950's flawlessly.
